PHOENIX -- A judge has ruled that Maricopa County doesn't have an enforceable zoning ordinance limiting where medical marijuana dispensaries can be located.

Superior Court Judge Michael Gordon's recent ruling supplements one he issued last month when he overturned the county's zoning ordinance for marijuana dispensaries.

Since then, the state Court of Appeals issued an order saying that a case involving a planned dispensary in Sun City remained with the jurisdiction of Gordon's court through Dec. 31.

Gordon's latest ruling said that means the only restriction on dispensaries in the county's unincorporated areas is a state law barring them within 500 feet of schools.

His Oct. 14 ruling said the county's zoning ordinance on dispensaries violated the state's medical marijuana law and appeared to be an attempt to thwart that law.
